Hello! Today is my first attempt at a Monthly Megapixel entry. I hope you like it!
Miku's Scrapbook~~~July 19, 2010
After last weekend's eventful concert, I suggested that we take a day off. Luka and Gakupo already had plans (a date, I'm sure!), Kaito we assume is still being held by rabid fangirls, and the police refused to release Rin because she's a danger to society. Well, I did tell her it probably wasn't a good idea to show up at the concert in a road roller, but she insisted....
Anyway, so Len, Tako, and I headed to Fox River to practice our photography and have a picnic. I thought it was perfect for a day long mini vacation. Here we are after we first arrived. It was cloudy, but that kept it from getting too hot.
I then decided it would make for cooler photos if we went out on the rocks in the river. Tako and I went and Len stayed on the shore. I think he took some good pictures.
But he wasn't paying attention when I tried to show him something!
So I took the picture myself. Baby ducklings!
Next I took a picture of the river. And then Len took a picture of me taking a picture of the river!
I was trying to look for shells on the beach, so I climbed on a log to get a better view. It was slippery though and I nearly fell off! Len was there to catch me, thankfully!
Tako was fascinated by the concrete blocks along the shore. I think they put them there for when the river floods, but I wasn't sure.
We were going to go back by the river but it started to rain, so we took shelter by the picnic tables. Tako complained that she was hungry (she always is!), so we unpacked our lunch and ate. It was delicious! But I didn't tell Tako that I was having takoyaki.
It was getting late, so we took on last group shot by the river before we went home. I was a bit cold from getting rained on, that's why I have a towel. I'm glad I remembered to bring one!
We all ended up having a really great day! It's important to take a day off and enjoy nature every once in a while. I was dissapointed that everyone didn't make it, but it actually was really nice. The three of us got along pretty well and had a lot of fun.
I'm hoping next time Kaito will be able to come along!
These photos were harder to take than usual because I kept slipping on the rocks. Miku's pose at the picnic table and the "slipping" picture were a little awkward because of posing/sitting limitations and I don't like having stands in natural looking photos, but I tried to make it look okay. It did end up being a lot of fun, aside from almost losing Len's hand and stepping in goose poop.... but I'm happy with the way the photos came out.
Thank you for looking! read
